, allows states to spend money that they don't have because the federal government will back them up. stuff like that. then there is getting the briefings from his national security team, sort of the homeland domestic security team. that's john brennan. janet napolitano, and then of course chris fugate who is the head of fema but he was brought in as sort of -- he was jeb bush's head of emergency planning in florida during that period, if you recall, when florida went through four hurricanes. all of the other states didn't seem to do it and this guy was seen as nonpartisan super emergency management person, if you will. and that's the guy running fema. the president is getting constant updates. you've got to wait it out. you've got to find out a middle storm. and you're managing and brought everything in and waiting for the storm to pass to figure out, okay, how bad is the cleanup? right now it's just hunker down. >> hold on. we got an update. sandy is now a post tropical cyclone, still very powerful and expected to make landfall in one hour right near us. let me show you a picture. this is
an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state.

, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a common sense agenda that says, when we educate a poor child, we'll a. be better off we need a vision that says we don't just look out for yourself. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations. and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election's all. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008, when we talked about change i told you, i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long. by lobbyists and special interests and politicians who believe that compromise is somehow a dirty word. by folks who
's a time when we remember what government is for and we also remember what mitt romney said fema should be. and that is privatize. you're watching our special coverage of hurricane sandy here on "politicsnation" on msnbc. >> right now the wind is really, really ripping. it's been getting stronger and stronger. the rain is going sideways and i can feel the sand hitting my back. >>> we're back on "politicsnation" with our continuing coverage of hurricane sandy. hundreds of thousands of people have already lost power. many in new york and new jersey. and joining me now by phone is new jersey congressman robin andrews who is near the impact point in new injuries see. congressman, thanks for speaking with us. >> thank you, reverend, for your concern about our people here. >> what's the latest that you can tell us? >> well, the latest is that sandy is right at us. it's hitting atlantic city soon. my district is 30 miles from that so i can see the sight of t we have police officers, nurses, social workers been out for the last 48 hours. they are doing a fabulous job. we have shelters set up. we h
% and is a firm believer that the 1% will take care of everything else. he does not believe in government. he does not believe in big government. host: another article in "politico" -- next call comes from mississippi on a republican line. what do you think? caller: i think governor romney would reach across the aisle. president obama definitely has not ever reached across the aisle. he pushed his obamacare through without any thought of what the people of america wanted. he is limiting health care for the older people. he is trying to pretend he really cares about people by going to these flooded areas, and that is not going to wipe out his record of working against the people of america. host: on our independent line, gabriel. caller: i think that overall, the party that would be most willing to compromise and come to a situation no room and discuss the politics that we need to be discussing past to be the democratic party. there are a lot of things that i do not support about the democrats and the republicans. i think overall that in order to get the things done that we need to have done, there
government has stepped in to help. this is the third hurricane i've covered in my lifetime, andrew, katrina and now this. we are at the point where the population gets furious and they turn on the government. the government can just not handle the huge, huge logistical requirements that happen after a storm like this. could this actually turn on the president at some point here? >> reporter: i don't think so. i think what the president has had the opportunity to do is show americans that he was involved in an effort that the country was rallying behind and do his job in a way that got praise by the keynote speaker at the republican convention, chris christie, very tough critic of the president otherwise. so i don't think many voters are going to blame president obama for what's going on right now, and leave aside the fact that the states in which the difficulties are occurring db new york, new jersey, connecticut are all reliantly democratic states. what is much more important to the outcome of this election, michelle, is what's going on behind me at this afl-cio phone bank where union volu
. we have the details. >>> a government aud slams half a billion dollars in stimulus for green jobs. i say our government dollars are wasted but of course there is somebody to disagree with me. >> bakthrough in video messaging hopes to be the next big thing. entrepreneur behind the game changing technology is here to explain. even when they say it's not it is always about money messa: so first let's take a look at the day's maet headlines. a rough-and-tumble week for stocks ending a on a quiet note. better than expected u.s. third quarter gdp data could knot offset worries about corporate earnings the dow eked out a gain of three points. good year was one of the biggest losers wi shares tumbling more than 10%. the tire-maker missed third quarter estimates driven by weakness in europe. one bright spot was expedia. shar soared 15%. they posted strong third quarter earnings fueled by a sharp rise in hotel bookings. >>> now to our top story. some people are calling it "frankenstorm". others call it a nor'easter-cane combination hurricane, nor'easter snowstorm or nightmare. if you live on t
. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it to the states, that's the right direction. if you can send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: that is mental! i can't believe he said that! so we shouldn't have fema at the federal level. what would be doing right now hoping chris christie gets it it right in new jersey? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during this election cycle during these primary debates they had among the republicans says fend f
will be back on. we have asked all the local governments that have had a down or registers office on monday and tuesday to extend their house over the next three or four days, so anybody that did not get to vote monday or tuesday can take advantage of those late hours to vote, so nobody does not have that absentee ballot rules. it does not change the rules. >> we know how close this election is and we have seen them getting tuned over to lawyers, does anything that's happened involve the absentee voting law a ground work for any challenges on the road? >> i don't think so. we're hoping this is an extension that we have requested and there's several in northern virginia that had to close their offices in the interest of public safety. we're pretty confident with working together that they are going to be extensions of time for people to vote and then we have no reason to believe that all of the places will not have the power restored by the end of the week. there should be no disruption and we ask the citizen to make sure that they vote and the can at this times were nice enough to cancel th
government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consiste
say that the same federal government that controls fema that can't preposition gasoline trucks near service station and preposition bottles and mres is the same federal government that wants to control your healthcare. if they can't hand out water bottles on time and properly how do they handle hip replacement surgery? we are watching the incompetentence of the federal government on display. >> sean: you know ohio. i there was with you in 2000 and 2004 and 2006 you have predicted with pinpoint accuracy what has happened in that state. a month ago, maybe it was two months ago you told me barack obama was going to win, ohio. you said that things have now changed dramatically in the swing state of ohio. where do you stand tonight, sir? >> sean hannity, this state has flipped from the blue column not red column for three reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008.
it was excellent, because it is. he said if i was not getting something from the federal government that i should call him directly at the white house, and he was going to be here, and not worry about dealing with anybody else, deal with him. >> there's that 3:00 am phone call. >> yeah. we were talking about that yesterday too, if you get rid of that federal aid it's problematic in times of disaster, because people in the state are in the midst of a disaster. >> exactly. they don't have a lot of ways to communicate or drive around -- >> why don't they drive the buses -- >> this is the exact time that you need federal assistance. >> you have an outside perspective, so you can assess how much equipment or assistance you need in that environment. there is also news too that he was upset with the mayor of atlantic city. >> i heard about that. what exactly went on? >> from what i understand is he was upset because people got stranded there. chris christie said get out, take this seriously, and he is blaming the mayor of atlanta city for sending people to shelters which are very c
government in the short term. >> yeah. >> right now people are just trying to deal with their immediate needs, moving in with neighbors, staying with friends. we have heard reports that some utility companies are talking about perhaps turning off water services, for example, because there could be contamination in the system. people are hunkering down and the work is just beginning. in this town, for example, the roads are covered with -- some places, several feet of sand. they're impassablimpassable. impossible to get in and out of some communities up and down the shoreline and in new jersey. again, to think of at this point of a lot of relief supplies arriving, people are hunkering down trying to deal with the near term right now. >> let me correct myself. it's congressman steve israel of new york saying he is in contact with fee many officials. needing more detail on the plan there. to your point, you have certain reaction with the individuals of point pleasant. it's a layer of response but nevertheless the president is landing at a critical time when i do think people want to hear as many
think. you know, that call attention to the rule, just crucial role of the federal government, fema at this time. lou: what have they done? >> it's what they're going to do. what they're already doing. lou: let me ask you this. and i have heard this. governments are great, but all the responding agencies are either state or local. they are the ones to decide how much santa push off the streets of point pleasant. there the ones deciding how to take care of the people being evacuated. you see where i'm going? >> i see where you're going. lou: you tell me about this big pad -- >> since i did say a thing about obama, let me just say this. you have to be very careful. go into a community cannot take away first responders. it takes a lot of cop, a lot of fire service and ambulances that should be doing meaningful things. >> that is why there bloomberg said don't come. >> new jersey. lou: the heck with all that and decided to get the cubs in state patrol and the motorcade. >> to have governor romney who was asked in june what he thought about fema and basically said, let the states to then

need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the president seems to have a lead in ohio. how would you handicap it, if you are looking at it back i have been looking at the polls all morning. they do show, basically, a dead heat right now. probably had a two or three-point lead a week or two ago. the storm, a lot of people -- connell: i have to interrupt you. we have breaking news now with a briefing of the mayor, michael bloomberg. >> let me caution everyone listenin

. it shows the president helping americans at a time in need. it shows the federal government doing something to help people. that's an argument that he's been trying to make with voters general low. and, you know, chris christie may well face a re-election fight next year for governor against newark mayor cory booker. it's probably helpful for governor christie as well. the only person it's not helpful for is maybe governor romney to have one of his chief surrogates out there touring today with the president. >> somebody we should remind people that this was the keynote speaker at the republican national convention who had some choice words for the president at that time. and reid, it's also getting a lot of attention and people are raising eyebrows because michael bloomberg essentially said to the president we're really busy here, new jersey can speak for the region and there's no need for you to come to new york city. what do you think that's about? >> well, i think that's about recovering from the storm. it is real difficult for any white house -- or any city that's been hit boy a storm t
